Leaf Peeping in North Georgia is Easier Than Ever

Leaf peeping in North Georgia is easier than ever, thanks to our friends with Georgia’s State Parks.

Now, men can drive their wives directly to the most vibrant red and gold displays of autumn and not pass any antique stores, trinket shops or yard sales!

Haha, just kidding!  Yes, the Leaf Watch Travel Planner will identify the most colorful spots, but you’re on your own dodging that other stuff.

The Leaf Watch website is packed with information on top trails and overlooks, mountain cabins and campsites, fall events.

Some of Georgia’s top state parks for leaf watching include those in the mountains, such as Black Rock Mountain, Cloudland Canyon, Fort Mountain, Tallulah Gorge and Vogel.

The higher elevations of F.D. Roosevelt, south of Atlanta, means autumn colors are often vibrant for late-season getaways after the last mountain leaves have fallen.

Georgia State Parks offer a variety of accommodations where leaf peepers can stay in the heart of autumn scenery.  Guests can choose from cabins, campsites and yurts.  You’re encouraged to make plans as early as possible.  Reservations can be made by calling 1-800-864-7275 or click here.

Park rangers have many events planned throughout October, including guided hikes and paddles, fall festivals, and Halloween hayrides and campground trick-or-treating.

Here’s the list of Georgia State Parks’ Events.
